SAN FRANCISCO - though do not want to explain publicly, Steve Jobs at the end of his life battling a rare form of cancer of the pancreas for years. He underwent a series of intensive and aggressive treatment, including liver transplantation, and last longer than others with this disease.

Tracing the history forward and backward from the helm of CEO three times, his seven-year battle against this disease. Health experts said that what happened outside of the usual and show encouraging progress in the field of medicine.

"I think we're not going to talk about how many years of additional enhancements," said Zev Wainberg, a gastrointestinal oncologist at UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center.

Jobs had pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, which found only about 5 percent from 43 thousand pancreatic cancer diagnosed each year. Generally, this type tumorr more treatable than the more common type of pancreatic cancer, "said Margaret Tempero, pancreas expert expert at the University of California, San Francisco, who is also former president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology." Meanwhile, patients with pancreatic cancer the most common form usually survive less than one year, "says Tempero.
